Perfect sunsets don’t always have to be over the ocean. Southampton has some of the best I have ever seen…
My mother moved to Southampton around five years ago in a house on top of a hill.
We soon realized that as the front of the house faces west, we were lucky enough to have a spectacular sunset nearly every evening.
A few years later I discovered (through eBay) my first Lomo camera which lead me to Lomography.com and an obsession with lomography. I bought several cameras both new and used and then came across the Recesky TLR, after building it from a kit, I ran a few rolls of slide through, including one roll of our Southampton sunsets and the results just blew me away…
I love the colors the cross processed Kodak Professional e100s Ekatachrome gave me and now everytime I visit, I look forward to capturing something amazing.
Oh and I already mentioned that it’s on top of a hill didn’t I?
For some, it marked their first foray into the wonderful world of analog photography. Others consider it a trusty, go-to camera despite having a massive camera collection which sometimes include some of the best gear there is. Whatever the case may be, toy cameras will always hold a special place in the hearts (and shelves) of analog photographers everywhere, quirks and all.
Not all photographs are meant to be seen in vibrant, saturated colors, and neither are they always suitable for in black and white. Lomography welcomes yet another innovation from KONO! The Reanimated Film. Without diminishing the aesthetic value of images, KONO! Donau 35mm Film casts a distinct blue tone to photos. It is ultra-low ISO film that is best used for long exposure shots. Check out this fine selection of uniquely tinted images.

Animals are unpredictable subjects of photography, especially while using film. It's always best if you document them in their natural habitat, but if they're at the zoo or wildlife park, be prepare to compose smartly. Here are some brilliant photographs from the Lomography community.
Kamila K Stanley is always on the cusp of an adventure. In the early part of 2015, she started inviting fellow photographers to join a collective named after a verse from "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds." And ever the curious observer, she spent some part of the year in Turkey. With a camera and reserve of 35mm films, of course.
I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!

Lomographers have arguably seen it all—and by all we mean not just the beautiful vistas, but also those places that only the brave ones venture into. Here are but a few of them.
